on the wealthy. the headlines tell the story. "the washington post" wrote, "obama offers plan for cliff, not compromise." "the new york times." "gop balks at white house plan on fiscal crisis." and "the wall street journal," obama's cliff offer spurned. i want to bring in joanne reed and molly ball, political reporter for "the atlantic." good to see both of you. good morning. >> good to be here. >> mitch mcconnell, we are told, literally laughed at the white house's offer. and if you listen to speaker boehner, it's not going very well. take a listen. >> i'm disappointed in where we are and disappointed in what's happened over the last couple of weeks. but going over the fiscal cliff is serious business. and i'm here seriously trying to resolve it. and i would hope the white house would get serious as well. >> and the speaker tweeted, "how serious is the white house about avoiding the fiscal cliff?" reports suggest, in some cases, not so serious. and also, joanne, what is the strategy here, and is there a risk like looking like you're not really negotiating? >> well, you know, i think wh
obama to be more clear and forceful in the things he cared about and less inconsistent? they wanted to see structure. part of confucianism is the king is the king, the minister is the minister, the father is the father, the son is the son, and many have government. and have everyone in his or her place. within the region and the world. as china looks at it since of harmony, japan would be -- how you achieve it, their frustration is the world is not just acquiescing to the notion they are a rich country, that there are returning, that there are powerful and what respect. they want this to the world kind of step back and give it greater latitude. but doesn't -- this is what i think i personally think we're on a collision course. when you look at what china's expectations of the world are, you also look at its paranoia and mercantilism. jim, you're such an expert in cyber. i would like to see what is going on in the cyberworld. it seems hard to me, despite our best efforts in not wanting to replace history, that the rise of a great power usually and often used to conflict. -- leads to
do about any of what he promised to do so let's look at the three obama promises. the first promise was in his first term when he said he will find a solution for the palestinian-israeli issue, and, unfortunately, we know what happened over the four years. that has not been that. it's an unfulfilled promise at best. some see it as a failed promise. the second promise the president of the united states had, unprecedented as it is, when he said the united states would never allow iran to be a nuclear power. now, this is unprecedented whether right or wrong, but it's something that was done not only during the elections, but a statement made by the president more than once, and i think it was in connection of promises made also to the israeli prime minister. how, will president obama fulfill the promise? wiggle out of it? absolutely implement it whether it's militarily or through containment policy, and what are they doing from my point of view, one of the reasons or a fascinating part about the gaza operation is that, a, they are giving hamas a lead in creating the new dynamics or dic

thank you and goodbye. [applause] >> president obama met at the white house with key congressional leaders including house speaker john boehner, house democratic leader nancy pelosi, senate majority leader harry reid and a republican mitch mcconnell. the first meeting since the election. they discussed what to do about expiring busheir tax reductions and across-the-board spending cuts set to hit in january called the fiscal cliff. they allowed cameras in the room before the talks. >> i want to welcome the congressional leadership and thank them for their time. we have -- factors don't go on middle class families that our economy remains strong and we are creating jobs and and that's the agenda that democrats and republicans and independents all across the country share so our challenge is to make sure that we are able to capri together and work to find common ground, make compromises and build consensus. all of us agree on this they want to see us focused on that but not our politics here in washington. my hope is this is the beginning of a process where we are able to come to an a
president obama at the white house. the presidential campaign is over as you know but the theatrics apparently are not. the president is holding an event to put political pressure on republicans as both sides negotiate a deal to try to avoid the coming fiscal cliff. our chief white house correspondent ed henry is live at the white house. so what are we expecting from the president today, ed? >> reporter: jon he is going to meet with business leaders as you say later this hour. he will come out and talk about where he believes these fiscal cliff talks are. you remember on friday he will be in pennsylvania for essentially a campaign-style event to try and pressure republicans to move forward in these talks. the white house also has this new twitter campaign they unveiled today, the hashtag, my 2 k, as in $2000 believes middle class families will get if the president's push to extend bush-era tax cuts for the middle class to continue. republicans have been saying that is all about campaigning. jay carney, the white house spokesman says it is about engaging the public. take a listen. >>
two gentlemen, rahm emanuel in the house and barack obama in the senate decided to vote for an amendment to the immigration bills that actually help the union. they were backed by the unions, and they decided that they would poison the well by voting for those amendments that killed immigration reform. nobody talks about that in the immediate, but it was liberal labor unions and those barack obama in the senate who decided to poison the well. he did it again this time, and i think as republicans we have to be smarter than we have been on this issue in the past. we have to look past the easy of the other side and find a rational solution to immigrati immigration. >> i find common ground with that analysis, raul, and i think also that marco rubio has done a very good job of articulating some of the things that emerged from this white house, and not, not, i don't know that you can, you can make a very strong case that republicans have been hostile on this dialog so much as it has been the president's leadership that's divided people in a whole number of different categories
a it took to re-elect president barack obama. millions of women's votes who helped us elect a record number of women to the congress of the united states. as you look forward understand that you are looking into the future. the future of empowerment of women in america. you saw some of these faces yesterday among the new members elect. i said then that they were part of the most diverse caucus in the history of the world, the first time that a parliamentary body would have a party when a majority of women and minorities as its strength, and we're very, very proud of that. said yesterday we did not have a majority but we have the gavel. excuse me. we don't have the gavel. [laughter] we don't have the -- we have something more important. we have unity. we do not have the gavel. we do not have the majority. but we have unity. i think our caucus this morning demonstrated that very clearly. so i come here with my sisters. when i came to congress 25 years ago, there were about 23 members of congress who were women out of 45. just think of that. 11 -- 12 democrats, 11 republicans. something like t
